A spot in the Big Ten Championship Game can be decided in the game between Wisconsin and Indiana. 

The Hoosiers are still alive in the title race with a 4-5 overall record, including 2-3 in the conference. 

Meanwhile, Wisconsin has to overcome the loss of quarterback Joe Stave, who has been ruled out for the season with a broken collarbone.

Here is everything you need to know about this important conference game.


Where: Memorial Stadium, Bloomington, IN

When: November 10 at 12 p.m. ET

Watch: ESPN2

Live Stream: Watch ESPN

Radio: Wisconsin Radio Affiliates, Indiana Radio Affiliates


Spread: Wisconsin (-7) via Vegas Insider

Wisconsin is the far superior team, but it is unknown how the team will react with a new quarterback. Danny O'Brien lost his job earlier in the year, which could lead the coaching staff to give the start to senior Curt Phillips.

Whoever starts, it will be a lot of pressure to come in and help the team in the biggest game of the year.

In addition, four of Indiana's five losses were by four points or less. The Hoosiers should be able to cover the spread.

OL Rick Wagner (Knee) Probable

DB Peniel Jean (Foot) Questionable

OL Dallas Lewallen (Knee) Questionable

QB Joel Stave (Shoulder) Out for Season



LB Jacarri Alexander (Neck) Questionable

OL Bernard Taylor (Wrist) Questionable


What's At Stake?

A spot in the Big Ten Championship Game and possibly the Rose Bowl is available to the winner of this game.

With Ohio State and Penn State both ineligible, the representative from the Leaders Division will have to be one of these two teams. Indiana is one game back, but a win would tie the race as well as give the team the head-to-head tiebreaker.

However, a Wisconsin win would clinch the division for the Badgers and give them a spot in the title game for the second year in a row.


Wisconsin Player to Watch: Montee Ball

Few players in the nation have had a more disappointing season than running back Montee Ball. 

The senior was expected to be a favorite for the Heisman this year after leading the NCAA with 1,923 yards and 33 touchdowns in 2011. 

His numbers are way down this year, although he is still in the top 15 in the nation with 1,028 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns.

Wisconsin will have to rely on the run game more in this game than it has all season without its starting quarterback. Ball will need to carry the offense like he was expected to all year long.


Indiana Player to Watch: Cody Latimer 

The Hoosiers have switched back and forth between Cameron Coffman and Nate Sudfeld at quarterback, but receiver Cody Latimer has been the constant for this offense.

Latimer had the best game of his career last week in the win over Iowa with 113 receiving yards on seven catches with three touchdowns. 

It is not likely that he will repeat this performance against the tough Badger defense, but the sophomore is the best chance for Indiana to move the ball on offense. The coaching staff needs to make sure they get him the ball early and often.


Prediction: Wisconsin 20, Indiana 17

Indiana will give the divisional rival everything it has, but at the end of the day Wisconsin has too much talent on both sides of the football.

Montee Ball should be able to run free with one of his best days of the season as the Badgers make a strong push for the Rose Bowl.
